A Black Cat Reads the News, Sweet Robin Says Hello & A Happy Yesterday

Wouldn’t you know it, within minutes of hitting the ‘publish’ button on my ‘Maisy & The Missing Sun’ post yesterday guess who made an appearance?  That  old sun must have read it and ‘liked’ it, although a comment would have been nice…his general appearance though more than made up for that, even though perhaps making a bit of a fool out of me.

Stepping outside to marvel at this lovely sight I was delighted to see that some of my bulbs are already in flower.   I do love my garden but I’m sorry to say I can’t remember what these are exactly, not crocuses, but some kind of iris I think?  Just grabbed the bulbs and put them in last October because I thought the colour looked rather lovely.

I also have not dared to mention anything about Sweet Robin lately.  That’s because, horror of horrors, I  haven’t seen him!  Until yesterday, that is.  Every day the blue tits, sparrows, even a starling or two, have been very active around the bird feeders, and each day I’ve been hoping beyond hope to catch sight of my little robin.  So. great delight then when yesterday, I saw a quick flash of red, then another, swoop across the garden stopping at the feeders and there, in full view, not only Sweet Robin (of course it’s him, who else?) but his little friend too.  They didn’t stay long, not enough to take any pics, but I’m grateful for the guest appearance.  He obviously just wanted to drop by and quickly say Hi. Probably wanted to show off his girlfriend too, and I must say, she looks lovely.

As I sat down to have a quick read of the paper after all this great excitement, my little boy (my moggie Eddie that is) decided that he, too, would rather like to have a read of the day’s news.  He loves newspaper and this never fails to happen.  It’s really annoying when there is a particularly interesting piece I’m engrossed in only to suddenly find a rather large black cat suddenly plonked down on the very paragraph I am halfway through reading.  Aside from all that, however, it is quite endearing.

Hope your yesterday brought good things and that today brings more of the same.

  2. Great post about the oncoming Spring! I love the photo of Eddie. I love that you call him your “moggie.” People here in the US don’t usually use that term. When I named my site “MoggiePurrs” everyone asked me “What’s a moggie?” I guess it was my love of all things British that made it a natural part of my vocabulary.

      I had forgotten that you don’t use the term ‘moggie’ in the US! Having lived in the US for so long (but been back in the UK for ten years now) I still regularly use American terms which are greeted with a, “What does that mean, never heard that before?” Truth is, I don’t even know myself anymore! I didn’t get a job that I applied for once because, apparantley, a letter I had to write as part of a written test they gave me contained too many ‘Americanisms’! Honestly, the cheek of it…:-)

      Thanks Tish, glad you enjoyed it! Yes, Eddie is indeed such a boy and he gets away with so much and knows it! As for me being an amateur weather forecaster, well, who knew….!! The forecast for today is more sun, still quite cold, but warm hearts thanks to good friends 🙂 x

  4. Love your style and yes, they are irises – a miniture kind but I can’t be more specific I’m afraid.
    Thanks for letting me know that you found my site via WB blog. No-one ever seems to leave any comments there and I often wonder how many people read it.
    I’ll look out for your contribution.

      Thanks Rosalie for visiting my blog and for your comments – and confirming that they are irises! Interesting what you say about the WB blog as I noticed the same thing as you that there don’t ever seem to be any comments. Strange that. Thank you for your support on Friday!
